“Carpe Dementia”: 

DETAILED INFORMATION

"Carpe Dementia" is the 3rd comedy parody satire funny music album by "the great Luke Ski". The cover and graphic design of the album is meant to be a parody of the Insane Clown Posse's "Joker's Cards" albums, specifically "The Great Milenko". The album was recorded at four different studios in the Kansas City area over 1998 & 1999.  It was the intention of Luke Ski to make this the first of his albums to get nationally distributed. It is because of this he decided to include 7 'Best-of Luke Ski' tracks on this album, comprised of the seven most popular tracks from his first 2 CDs. 5 of the tracks were recorded again from scratch, while 2 remained in their original form. The remaining 13 tracks are all new song parodies that have been recorded over the past year. Luke does almost all of the vocals and all of the voice impressions on this album. He uses samples in some of his songs, which are fairly obvious to pick out. The musical genre's parodied are half Rap and Alternative, with Rock, Folk, Disco, Dance, Swing, and one Stand-up comedy track filling out the other half. The subject matters were arranged on the CD thusly: Food, Animation, Television, Movies, Science Fiction.  The seven most popular tracks from his first 2 CDs, "Fanboys 'n da Hood" and "Shadows of the Bunghole" are on this album.

Track 1 - Fruit Loops - 3:01
A parody of "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins about breakfast cereals.

about being a hard-core "Weird Al" Yankovic fan. Luke Ski got the idea for this song in the hopes that there would be a second 'Prosthetic Lips' "Weird Al" Yankovic tribute album, so he could make a submission. But since that's looking less and less likely, he put the song here as a hidden track just for fun.

TOTAL LENGTH: 73 minutes, 46 seconds
